Sunday brunch at noon in the fox was nice. They serve breakfast til 12.30 on Sunday and it did feel like they were setting up for lunch all around us. However veggy breakfast and breakfast ciabatta were nice and came out quickly. Service is slow, always feels like you are having to ask them for drinks, bill etc rather than... More

My wife and I tried the fox for the first time a couple of Sundays ago and were not disappointed. The service staff were first class, nothing was too much trouble, really nice atmosphere and not too crammed in which is always nice. The food is delicious, good portions and not over priced, one of the best places we've eaten... More

i decided to treat my family for Xmas Eve tea out and chose The Fox to take my husband and two teenage boys. Having seen their picnic benches advertised I was intrigued and thought it a great occasion to try their "festive version" We had never been to The Fox before and I was pleasantly surprised. Cosy, warm but not... More

We didn't have a reservation and they seemed to be busy but they were accommodating and found us a table straight away. The gave us a large booth for about 8 people. We asked if they minded us taking up a huge table and... More

I really wanted to like this bistro having researched it on T.A. and visited its own website which looked inviting. The food (steak pie & chips, seafood linguini) were both nicely cooked and presented but the service was poor. We arrived off- peak on Sunday, the bar area where we were seated was half empty. There appeared to be lots... More

Very good pub/restaurant. Nice ambience, very tidy and clean and looked very Christmassy when we were there. Handled our 12 people group very well. Everything arrived on time to-gether and a good choice on the menu. Not expensive wines and excellent well kept real ale. Out in the country a bit but on the main road so easy to find...... More
